There are many different treatments that are available today for people who want to improve their smile. One of the options is Invisalign. If you have never heard of Invisalign before, this is a type of brace for your teeth. However, it is nothing like the metal, visible braces that you may have conjured an image of as soon as the term braces were presented. Instead, Invisalign represents braces that are removable and they are virtually invisible, meaning that no one will see them.
Invisalign aligners are fully transparent. Your dentist will ensure that they are custom made so that they straighten your teeth gradually, without any metal brackets or wires being used. Your aligners will be able to correct a number of different orthodontic issues in a discreet manner so that you end up with an even and balanced smile. A lot of patients notice the difference in just three months, which makes this quite a remarkable treatment solution.
One of the main reasons why so many people prefer to opt for aligners is because they are completely clear and this means that they are virtually invisible. You can also remove them. This means that if you are going to brush your teeth or eat your lunch, you will be able to take your Invisalign braces out so that you do not have to try and brush in between them.
You may be wondering how this treatment works. If you are interested in Invisalign, it all begins with a trip to see your dentist. Your dentist will take a bite impression of your teeth, enabling him or her to then create your aligners. 3D imaging technology is used so that your bite impressions can be transformed into removable and clear aligners that are custom made to suit you. After your aligns have been made, your dentist will show you how to wear them and use them properly. You will need to wear your retainers during the night for six months, and then typically a few times throughout the week. Your dentist will advise you on all of this, so you do not have anything to worry about.
In some cases, you will need a full set of Invisalign braces. However, it may be that you only need to have Invisalign for the top or bottom set of teeth. What makes dental treatment so advanced today is that it is always tailored to suit the specific needs of the patient. All you need to do is have a consultation to get the ball rolling.
To conclude, Invisalign can be a great treatment option if you want to straighten your teeth but you do not want to wear the metal braces that are highly visible and cannot be removed.
